Request for Applications for country/regional WASH innovation partners - by: SophieEdwards
This center is a new initiative managed by R4D and funded by the Rockefeller Foundation. The center will identify the most promising and innovative WASH programs, policies and practices, and facilitate their scale-up by connecting these programs to others in the field, policy makers, researchers and potential funders, as well as key tools and services they need.

To make this happen, we are looking for Country or Regional Partners who will work with R4D to employ a three-pronged approach:

IDENTIFY | Provide comprehensive, up-to-date information about programs with the potential to improve the way education systems operate for the poor.

ANALYZE | Analyze programs in order to translate good practices and build the body of research on non-state innovations and their role in education systems.

CONNECT | Connect those who are implementing, funding, and analyzing programs in order to facilitate the scale-up and adaptation of successful models.

R4D will provide grants to an initial group of 2 to 3 Country or Regional Partners based in low and middle-income countries to identify and document innovative WASH programs and facilitate linkages among stakeholders in their country or region, including program implementers, policymakers, researchers and funders. Please review the attached Request for Applications (RFA) to learn more about the project and the role of Country/Regional Partners. Or download the application and attachments here:

Re: 6 May 2014 deadline for: Bill & Melinda Gates 'Grand Challenges' Grant Opportunities - by: scottchen Calls for proposals (projects and awards) and fund-raising proposals Sat, 08 Mar 2014 06:53:26 +0000 Re: 6 May 2014 deadline for: Bill & Melinda Gates 'Grand Challenges' Grant Opportunities - by: muench (Grand Challenges Explorations of BMGF) is in this funding round not applicable to our sanitation topic (I thought perhaps hygiene and hand-washing might be part of it, but looking at the topic description in more detail, I don't think so (?)).

By the way, I noticed that the bullet point list of topics on their website is slightly different compared to the e-mail that was reproduced above, where the bullet point on "novel enabling tools..." has had the words "for Severe Diarrhea" removed and now reads (on the website):
  • Novel Enabling Tools and Models Supporting Development of Interventions for Enteric Dysfunction

It's a pity that "our" topic was only prominent in Round 6 and 7 (2010 and 2011), see here:

where it was called:
"Create the next generation of sanitation technologies"

The results of many of these grants are available here on the forum:

A good proportion of them, about one third (my guess), have recieved follow-up funding and are still active right now.
Some of them have been featured in the SuSanA-SEI webinars, see Youtube Playlist here:

About the Grand Challenges Canada grants, I don't know much about them.
They were mentioned as a (co-)funding partner on the forum here:
and here:
and here:

So it looks like a reasonable place to apply for, for sanitation grants - perhaps also for this round? (hmmm, only 4 days to go until deadline of 10 March, that's tight!)

Re: Funding offer for dry toilet project - by: Amirtha
Wishes from Association for Social Solidarity and Empowerment Training Trust (ASSET)

We happy to apply and funding for dry toilet project and herewith submit our detail project to your concern, kindly consider our project.

Project Proposal for Improving Water Supply, Promoting Personal Hygiene Practices, and introduction of ECOSAN toilets in Sedapatti block of Madurai district of Tamil Nadu, in India


ASSET Trust is a registered, Non – Profit, Social development, Voluntary organization working in the year 2011, deserving people especially vulnerable section of people living at very remote areas of Sedapatti, Usilampatti and Chellampatti block level in Madurai District, Tamil Nadu, where there are no services are reaching out, Now we work to promote Health, Education, Economic & Environment concepts through participatory women forum, and collaborating with Nationalized banks, and Tamil Nadu Govt. women development corporation for technical and Financial assistance as viable to our target. K. Amirthalingam is the Managing Trustee of ASSET TRUST. ASSET TRUST has good rapport with target beneficiaries, stakeholders, community leaders, government officials, donor agencies, social organizations, educational institutions and like minded NGOs.

Goal of the Project

Empowering the people’s organizations to achieve sustainable improvements in their quality of life by improved potable water supply, sanitation and associated health and hygiene practices.


The World Health Organization [WHO] estimates that over 80% of the diseases occur due to water-born diseases and poor maintenance of sanitation. Water and sanitation related diseases include all types of diarrhea, dysentery, typhoid, hepatitis, polio, skin and eye infections and other mosquito born infections they are most frequently transmitted by poor hygiene. Poor environmental condition arising from unhygienic disposal of fasces, silage and other solid waste contribute to the spread of diseases. They lead to contamination of food, water either at source or in home. They may encourage breeding of insect’s further increase in the spread of diseases. Based on these aspects, ASSET Trust conducted a situational assessment study for promoting Water and Sanitation (WATSAN) program. All the inhabitants of the villages surrounding Sedapatti fall in the category of vulnerable and needed to be addressed the above-mentioned problems observe in this village through a comprehensive WATSAN Program with appropriate behavior change communication with an active participation of the local communities.

Target group and their present situation
The targeted people for the Project are mostly belonging to scheduled community and neo-literates and basically, landless labor. Their poverty condition is getting down due to frequently affected by water born diseases and diseases caused by unhygienic practices (Fecal – oral diseases). The expenses for treatment and time taken made them more dept and borrow money from moneylenders for higher rate of interest to meet these expenses. The efforts taken by Government and NGOs for their livelihood could not achieve the objectives due to heavy expenses on treatment sides. Unhygienic village environmental issues must be addressed with community based comprehensive water and sanitation programs with people’s participation. Intensive hygiene education would create such demands among them instead of creating only hardware’s components and force them to use. This will not serve the purpose of the attempt. Women of the village have already been organized as self help groups by different organizations for livelihood and micro credit programs. Life saving messages and educations on safe practices has not yet reached out. All use to go for open defecation in near by fields and roadsides in the rainy season and feces are not safely disposed and but exposed to flies and pets and domestic animals, which cause diseases. There are more number of diarrhea cases reported in rainy days and flood periods. There are no hygienic practices among them such as hand washing after defecation, proper drinking water handling, hand washing before food, disposal of children faces etc.


The fruits, vegetables and green grown in the area of defecation getting in contact with faces lying very close.These flies sit on the exposed food items, water and
Flies sitting on the mouth especially children.Foods are not covered.No hand washing practice after defecation and after handling child faces with cleaning agent.Unsafe water source for collecting water for drinking and cooking and storing and handling it hygienically.No clean containers and safe handling Children are with dirty nails.

Reason for the selection of the Water and Sanitation (WATSAN) Project: The village community lacks the most important education on using Toilets as open defecation is evident. Particularly the SC communities deserve this Project as they are normally neglected from mainstream development. Schedule Caste People are mainly living in depressed and neglected conditions. They have poor access to water and sanitation facilities of hygienic education and awareness. In order to address their needs and facilitate hygienic living, this project has been selected.

Objectives of the Project

Dates will be fixed in consultation with the people for meetings and house visits
Cooperation of school authorities
Sustainability Plan of the Project (Linkage & Leverage)

The assets created will be looked after by the Sangams / WATSAN Committees which will have properly trained persons as members. The monthly subscription collected by the WATSAN committees and the proceeds of the community kitchen gardens will be utilized for maintenance and repairs. Sangams will get any major repair replacement done by the Panchayat Union. The knowledge acquired from the drinking water/health awareness activities will help the end users to get maximum service from the sources. TRSP, DRDA and Education Department will be involved more in the program activities. Subsidy from TRSP program would for IHHL construction along with people contribution. The training to be given to the selected women in every village by the Health workers of this project will be of much use in spreading the knowledge to the others and to take preventive and promotional steps for health development. The Sangams will also arrange periodically some awareness programs for updating their knowledge. Thus, it is hoped that sustainability will be facilitated with respect to health, water and sanitation in the target village.

The Proposal is to initiate and evolve introduction of Eco-San and Water and Sanitation intervention amongst the disadvantaged rural communities in Sedapatti block with other supporting software components such as awareness and capacity building. As per your guidelines, community contributions are best articulated in the Project budget with due recognition for the role of women and children to participate.

The Project described in the attached document affected at the most affected area called Sedapatti block, Madurai district, where the majority of rural households do not have sphere standards in water and sanitation arrangements. A positive outcome of the Project is that it will increase the possibilities of environmental benefits and at the same time the quality of livelihoods free from diseases out of open defecation.

We trust that this Project Proposal is completely in line with your priorities and follows your agency’s policy to benefit the poor of India. We will look forward to hearing your reactions to this Proposal and we invite you to visit our Organization. We have many times to try to applying online to your through your agency, unfortunately our attachment not sent online project application, so herewith happy to send our project application with soft copy to your concern for your further consideration
Thank you for your consideration.
